While readers can now enjoy these tasty tequila concoctions at home, nothing beats drinking them alongside some of Tacos & Tequila’s fabulous fare. Be sure to try the Thyme for Fig Margarita alongside Tacos & Tequila’s chopped salad or veggie tacos. Other pairings include Jabbarita with the sizzling fajitas combo. You can choose from chicken, steak and shrimp served with refried black beans, rice and tortillas or mahi mahi. The Paloma pairs well with the grilled shrimp or fish tacos and the Watermelon Cooler goes great with the chicken enchiladas divorciadas. The enchiladas come with shredded chicken, roasted tomato-guajillo sauce and tomatillo cream sauce. The drink also pairs well with the Mexican cobb salad.
